"Alexis" Lyrics

Tommy Bolin

Alexis thank you for a pleasant Southern day
Spent on the levy throwin' pennies in the bay
And talkin' of the rich folks
On the big boats that pass that way
You were just a young girl
I just could not stay
Alexis I can't remember how we met back then
Was on my way to Atlanta, now I'm on that road again
Not really poor, had money, just not to spend
You were just a young girl, and I was in need of a friend

Alexis you always used to talk about
Leavin' your home town, headin' on South
Maybe down to New Orleans
And you wanted me to help you out
But you were just a young girl
And I was just a hobo that had my doubts
Alexis I did not want to, want to leave you there
Sometimes this life we lead is so unfair
I wanted to take you with me
But I did not dare
You were just a young girl and I could not pay your fare
Alexis you always used to talk about
Leavin' your home town, headin' on South
Maybe down to New Orleans
And you wanted me to help you out
But you were just a young girl
And I was just a hob that had my doubts

Had my doubts
Had my doubts
Had my doubts
